Titleist goes to the dark side with new AP irons

4.49pm 28th January 2019 - New Products

Titleist has revealed details of its limited 718 AP2 Black and 718 AP3 Black irons, which will be available to buy from March 1.

Each iron has been finished with a sleek, high-polish black PVD coating, utilises True Temper AMT Onyx shafts with a powder matte black finish to minimise glare, and comprises an all-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip.

The new 718 AP2 is a co-forged, cavity-back design that Titleist claims “provides ultimate playability with consistent distance and forgiveness,” while the 718 AP3 is regarded as “the player’s distance iron.”

Titleist says that the AP2 and AP3 Black irons were designed as a result of requests from its tour staff.

“Since we added AP3 to our lineup last fall, more and more golfers are experiencing the game-changing speed and forgiveness of this hollow-blade construction, while AP2 continues to set the standard for Tour played iron technology,” said Titleist’s VP of golf club marketing, Josh Talge.  “One request we heard from both Tour players and amateurs, particularly those who have gravitated toward our Jet Black Vokey SM7 wedges, was if they could have these same irons in a darker finish.”

RRPS: £185/£210 per club (st/gr)
